The Admiral House makes use of oversize windows and multiple atriums to invite the natural light into the common spaces and create a sense of openness and connection with the exterior landscape. This is further emphasized by the incorporation of the bamboo garden in one of the atriums adding to the house a Zen like aesthetic.

The Admiral House combines sustainable and eco-friendly building practices such as; cross ventilation, gray water collection planters, and passive solar building design that takes into account site location and solar orientation to maximize natural light in the house while also maintaining a low house temperature. All home areas have been thoroughly designed bringing vibrancy to contrast the clean modern living spaces.
